Report: Utah’s coal industry fading while more eco-friendly outdoor recreation surges 26.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Nearly $400 billion worth of high-quality coal lies under lands protected by the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, but the best thing for Utah would to leave this black bounty where it is ­— in favor of embracing cleaner energy sources and outdoor recreation, both of which abound in the Beehive State. So says a new report from the group Alliance for a Better Utah that highlights the coal industry’s ever-dimming future and rising prospects of eco-based tourism. “Outdoor recreation pro... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Quitting Paris likely to have muted effect in key industries 3.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Dallas • President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord may have only limited immediate impact on many U.S. companies, according to analysts. In part that is because the Paris agreement only went into effect last year, it’s voluntary, and doesn’t carry penalties for countries that fall short of emissions-cutting targets. “What you have is a president making a nonbinding withdrawal from a nonbinding agreement,” said Kevin Book, an analyst with ClearV...

Kushner firm apologizes for citing White House ties 9.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • Plenty can go wrong when foreign money mixes with immigration green cards, real estate deals and political connections. Revelations that the sister of Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, promoted a program offering a path to U.S. citizenship to Chinese backers in a Kushner family project bring new scrutiny to a foreign investor visa program. The Kushner Companies apologized Monday, saying it had not meant to lure investors by using Jared Kushner’s name at...

Catherine Rampell: Will Trump force thousands of legal immigrants to stop working? 1.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
WASHINGTON • Come Monday, the Trump administration may quietly revoke the ability of hundreds of thousands of immigrants — almost all women — to legally work in the United States, forcing them to choose between heading back to their kitchens or leaving the country altogether. They are the spouses of workers here on high-skilled visas, and are typically high-skilled themselves. Many have launched businesses that created jobs for U.S. citizens, whose employment may in turn be at risk, too. Take, f...

McBaine: Helping Utah families means letting the last century go 26.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Last week, James Green, vice chair of the Wasatch County GOP, resigned after publishing comments arguing against equal pay for men and women: “If businesses are forced to pay women the same as male earnings, that means they will have to reduce the pay for the men they employ. … Simple economics.” Green continued: “If that happens, then men will have an even more difficult time earning enough to support their families, which will mean more mothers will be forced to leave the home (where they may...

On Feb. 15, ParkRecord.com published a letter from then-Wasatch County GOP vice-chairman James Green bemoaning wage equality because of “simple economics.” Based on his letter, Green’s understanding of economics is rudimentary. I am a daughter of Utah, born and raised. I will graduate shortly with an MBA from the University of Utah, thanks in part to generous state-sponsored tuition waivers and scholarships. After graduation I am taking my MBA, and matching salary, out of state, in part because... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

NFL: Coaching-hire disparity goes beyond what Rooney Rule can address 30.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
I don’t know if an NFL official, or maybe a team official or two, took to the pulpit Tuesday in a very private memorial ceremony in San Diego for Dennis Green, who in 1992 with Minnesota was given the chance to be just the third black head coach in NFL history. Fritz Pollard in the 1920s before the NFL segregated itself. Art Shell in the late ’70s. Green in the early ’90s. What progress. Green died last week at age 67. It was reported that he suffered cardiac arrest. His second and last NFL head...
